The National Medal of Honor Museum Foundation today announced the addition of three new members to its Board of Directors, who will play a leadership role in the creation of a permanent home to honor America’s bravest heroes.
The new board members are: Britt Slabinski Master Chief Petty Officer (SEAL), USN (Ret.) and Medal of Honor recipient.
“As we look for a permanent home for the Museum we welcome these three new Directors who share our desire to honor and commemorate the best and bravest who have served our country.”
The National Medal of Honor Museum is currently conducting a targeted search for the best home for the museum to inspire as many Americans as possible. It will offer an experience that draws personal and emotional connections to Medal of Honor recipients and their stories, while shedding light on the wars in which they fought and the ideals that the Medal of Honor represents. Visitors will come to understand the meaning and price of freedom—and appreciate the virtue of putting service above self. The museum is currently working with world-renowned architect Moshe Safdie and his team, along with Patrick Gallagher, exhibition designer for the National World War II Museum.
